Hit It! It’s Ski and Snowboard Season

Winter is here, and that means one thing: It’s time to hit the slopes.

With the most snow in the Maritimes plus Atlantic Canada's largest ski vertical, we’ve got some seriously good conditions for a ride down the mountain or along tree-studded trails.

Whether you're looking for smooth-sailing runs or heart-pounding drops, you'll find it here. 4 different ski hills offer vast and varied terrain, from bunny hills to black diamonds, with challenging terrain parks for snowboarders and a whole lot of après-ski fun.

Just a beginner? Learn the basics with a lesson at one of the on-site ski schools. Little ones love the slopes too – sign them up for snow camp and see their faces light up with delight.

Of course, cross-country skiers know it’s not all about the slopes, and our network of ski trails doesn’t disappoint. From pristine natural settings to urban centres, you’ll find kilometre after kilometre of trails winding through New Brunswick’s snow-draped landscape. Try one of the ski workshops or friendly competitions offered by local ski clubs, and don’t miss the guided moonlight treks - also great for snowshoers and winter walkers.

Check out the cross-country trails in our national and provincial parks or visit Hiking NB for even more places where you can turn up your winter.
